Since 2008, Only Burger in Durham has been serving up exceptional burgers that keep people coming back for more. Originally a fast food truck, Only Burger quickly became a popular go-to for people seeking an exceptional burger on the go. Owner Brian Bottger’s belief that ordinary food can be exceptional is shown through the popularity of Only Burger. In fact, the delicious burger offerings of Only Burger became so popular that a brick and mortar store was finally opened in 2010.
